About Me

I am a trained, experienced and accredited counsellor. I am not a psychologist or a psychiatrist. I do not diagnose my clients or prescribe medication. I began my counselling career in 2010, as a volunteer counsellor on a crisis hotline.
Currently, I perform counselling for a full range of emotional and psychological issues. As part of my training, I have performed many hours of supervised counselling. As a professional, I have performed thousands of hours of counselling dealing with a wide range of emotional issues and working with a diverse group of adult men, women and couples.

English Language
Counselling In Tallinn

Tallinn has many qualified psychologists that perform talk therapy in one form or another. It can be a problem, however, finding a psychologist who speaks fluent English and is available for an appointment in a reasonable period of time. There is also the question of whether a client “clicks” with the psychologist. Clinical psychologists often rely heavily on quantifiable tools such as standard questionnaires to assess the mental state and psychological needs of a client. I find this approach both impersonal and ineffective.

I am an internationally trained and accredited counsellor. I offer humanistic counselling. I regularly accept new clients and respond quickly to inquiries. I can promise you I will not attempt to quantify you, but rather will work with you to try and understand the underlying reasons for your desire for counselling, as well as a reasonable way to approach the problem. I offer a personal, comfortable, non-clinical approach to my engagement with clients. My desire is to help you to improve your life.

Humanistic Counselling For Improved Well-being

Life can be very stressful.

Without any added problems, life itself can simply be stressful. Many adults have also suffered through a difficult or traumatic childhood or adolescence. Some people have been victims of trauma or abuse. Life events can overwhelm our coping mechanisms, often resulting in depression, anxiety or low self-esteem. A change in circumstances, such as a relationship failure, work or study stress, personal injury, loss of income, divorce, illness or death of a close friend or family member, can create circumstances that simply overwhelm an individual.

What Is Counselling?

Feeling Better

In the simplest terms, counselling is a form of talk therapy that helps a person to feel better about themselves and life in generalMore specifically, counselling can help a person better manage emotional pain, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, as well as overcome addiction to alcohol and other substances and harmful behaviours. Counselling has the potential to raise a person’s self-esteem, alleviate stress, process trauma, overcome phobias and lead to a sense of fulfilment and self-realization.

Talk Therapy

Counselling is talk therapy that involves an ongoing relationship between a counsellor and a client that is founded in support, trust openness and healing. The main function of counselling is to assist a client in going from a troubled emotional state to an improved, healthy and sustainable state. In many cases, clients have a very specific emotional problem that needs to be addressed. At other times, a more generalized sense of emotional pain is in need of healing. In all cases, I assist my clients in finding a way out of their particular problems and discover a place inside themselves where they can experience self-worth, self-love and personal acceptance.

A New Perspective

A good counsellor helps a client to see and deal with problems in new and unique ways. The counselling space is one in which a client can openly explore various aspects of their life, including childhood trauma, emotional imbalance, anxiety, relationship issues, self-esteem and self-love, destructive thought processes, troubling relationships, traumatic events, abusive behaviours, toxic thinking, fear, self-esteem and self-love. The counselling space is safe and totally confidential.

Unconditional Positive Regard

As a counsellor, I provide my clients with unconditional positive regard. I act as guide, confidant and supporter. Perhaps I can help you see things from new, healthier and more constructive perspectives. The ultimate outcome in humanistic counselling is one where a client goes from an unhealthy state to a healthy state in relation to their particular emotional/psychological issues. This comes about as a result of changes fostered in counselling and then carried forward into a person’s day to day life.

Self-validation

I work to help my clients to feel better about themselves and life. I want to help my clients change their thinking and related behaviours so they experience a healthy sense of purpose, fulfilment and balance in their daily lives. I try to help my clients achieve a sense of self-validation. In this state, a person experiences a deep sense of balance, purpose and well-being that benefits both themselves, as well as all others with whom they interact. It is a wonderful way to live. And I believe it is possible for anyone. A little help getting there is sometimes necessary.

What Is My Specific
Counselling Approach?

Humanistic and Supportive

My approach utilizes both directive and non-directive counselling techniques personalized for each particular client’s needs. Every client is different and comes to counselling with a unique set of emotional challenges. I work in collaboration with my clients, as their strong supporter, as we explore the client’s psychological and emotional issues. Using a variety of techniques common to talk therapy including cognitive behavioral therapy, client-centered therapy and mindfulness; together, we go through the issues a client is facing.
